I had quite a few people asking me if I was reviewing these so I’m happy I can finally post them for you! I am a Zoya fanatic so when I got the press info for their new fall collection I about lost it. Diva will be going up soon. The Gloss Collection was also released (its a trio) & I’ve seen lots of swatches so I’ll be doing something a bit different with mine. Stay tuned for that! All of these are 2 coats although Rehka could of probably used 3.
Rekha- A medium toned red cream with a glint of brightness.
This is described as a “Bold medium blood red with a glossy cream finish” on the Zoya site. This was a custom shade for fashion designer Bibhu Mohapatra & it is lovely. This one is a tad sheer & I find it to be brighter than what I consider a blood red. Maybe I’m too picky about vampy polishes?
Toni-A wine/plum cream shade with a red tone.
Described as a “Dark raisin-wine creme with strong purple tones” by Zoya I’m definitely digging it. It is very flattering on me & I find many red toned plums are. This one is a traditional fall shade that I’ve seen many seasons before but the application on this was superb.
Monica- A deep plum cream.
Zoya says this is a “Dark, soft blue-toned purple with a glossy cream finish” & I agree. Definitely one we see season after season but its super flattering, is a staple for fall, & had perfect application.
Natty- A steely blue with a slightly murky tinge.
Zoya says Natty is a “Smoky, deep steel blue with an opaque cream finish” & again, I agree. Its my favorite which was unexpected! I have lots of blues or blue-ish polishes (& clearly a teal/turquoise obsession) but I don’t have anything quite like it! I fully expected the plumier shades to be my favorites for fall so this was a great surprise. It looks incredible on.
Evvie- A smoky green leaning teal cream with grey undertones.
“Dark, smoky grey cream with strong teal green undertones” says Zoya. Clearly, I think the opposite but either way, its about the same. This was one of the original shades created for designer Peter Som. It leaned more green on me then expected from the shade in the bottle.
Noot- Deep grey/green cream with a lot of murkiness.
Zoya says this is a “Very dark grey cream with strong blue-green undertones” but I honestly only saw grey & smokiness on me, no blue. I like this shade, especially for fall.
So what do I think of the collection overall? I’m a bit bummed that Evvie & Noot appear so close, I wish they had included a dirty orange or chocolate perhaps? Either way, those colors wouldn’t have fit in that much anyway. All of these cremes are lovely & there’s an alluring…greyness to the entire collection. If you don’t have many fall shades, this is a great place to start building your collection. My must-have of the bunch is definitely Natty, I love this shade! Toni was probably the most flattering shade on my fingers so I will probably be wearing this on my fingers & toes this fall!
What shades catch your eye for fall? Anything calling your name? Are you ready for summer to end int he nail world? Also, I’m going to be doing some fall nail art, any color requests that you see here or have seen in my stash in the past?
